  • Msg From Kweli

    http://www.okayplayer.com/cgi-bin/dc..._announcements

    You know what, I’m a fan of hip-hop too. If I had a chance to get a hold of one of my favorite artists CD’s early, I would jump at it. So if some asshole from a recording studio leaks my unfinished, unmixed and uneven album, consider it a personal triumph. Play it for your friends, and if you like it, buy the version I want you to have. If you are a fan of my music, allow me to live off it so I can continue to bring it to you. But once you put it on a website and encourage people to download it, you become the bigger asshole. You are not respecting my artistic process and worse, you are taking food out of my children’s mouth. The **** is depressing really because I work so hard and I deserve the right to determine how I want my music presented. If you are truly a fan of my music, please do not support people who do this, no matter what the temptation might be. This music is what I have to live on. You also disrespect the other artists by spreading rough vocals and rough mixes. You really don’t give a **** about nobody but yourself. It’s sad.
    ImRickJames*****, are you that much of a loser that you gotta live off another man’s work? Put your own ****in’ album on your website. Get you some pro tools, pay producers and studio time, get guest artits to come be on your ****. Then maybe you won’t be tempted to just disrespect somebody’s craft. Kanye shipped 800,000 records. How many records do you think I will ship? But yet you couldn’t resist to expose MY album? That **** is not fly. I will find out who you are and you will be dealt with accordingly. This is no threat. To everyone else, I am blessed that there is so much anticipation for what I hope will be a great album. I have never gone gold or platinum. If you think I should be by now please don’t support or do **** like ImRickJames*****; that **** does not help. I have a mixtape coming next week. Download that. Please help my cause, don’t hurt it, and I will always be the best artist I can be.

              i don't think that it's an actual message/statement from talib kweli himself, but that doesn't mean i agree with what the message states.. it's really depressing when somebody steals what's close to you and it's very disrespectful

                    LMAO @

                    This is a message from ImRickJames***** who Kweli was talking to in his post....

                    I appreciate your announcement and definitely see some of your points. But I think your anger should be directed toward the ***** who stole your **** out the studio.
                    And everything was cool up until the "I will find out who you are and you will be dealt with accordingly" ****. Be a man about yours and don't speak in ambiguous phrases. Will YOU deal with me accordingly? If that is the case, you don't have to find out who I am. I can send you my info and you can come see me "accordingly". I'm not trying to be a tough guy, but you don't really pose a physical threat to me. So you might just want to abandon that option.

                      i can imagine any artists getting pissed at bootlegging (e.g eminem straight from the lab tracks) but compare eminem 2 kweli, who knows kweli apart from hip-hop fans and who knows eminem, eminem goes platinum even when everyone bootlegs the shit out of his album

                          Fuck the sympathy shit. It's karma... He said himself "If I had a chance to get a hold of one of my favorite artists CD’s early, I would jump at it."

                          He's contradicting himself and going on a messageboard crying about it is not whoaaa
